The Primescan is reliable for scanning large restorative cases.  This video will demonstrate the advantages of using a segmental prep and scan strategy for scanning larger restorative cases.  This technique will also work well for Omnicam users.

The Articulation feature in the CEREC software is designed to identify and remove the lateral excursive interferences of occlusion by setting the posterior articulating determinants and recognizing anterior guidance.  This video will demonstrate 3 case reviews using the Functionally Generated Path for micro-occlusion virtual control.

This lesson will walk through a single central workflow using the Primescan, e.max, and MiYO brush-on ceramic.  The principles are applicable to Omnicam users.

This video documents my very first imaging step to achieve predictable occlusion with our milled restorations and avoiding high occlusion (technique applicable to Omnicam and Primescan users).  As a dental clinician, I am so grateful for digital technology and excited about what the Primescan by Dentsply Sirona will provide in accuracy and ease of imaging.

When do we, as CAD/CAM clinicians, choose a zirconia material over a lithium disilicate material in our clinical theaters?  This CEREC case review video is an overview when making a decision on when to use zirconia and the steps for efficient Primescan Software design.

Materials and applications in this video:

  • ZirCAD Multi
  • ZirCAD LT
  • Zirconia furnace indications (SpeedFire, CS4, Programat S1)
  • Posterior Primescan CEREC software design flow (paralleling design flow for Omnicam most recent software)

There are several steps when working through the Acquisition Screen that will assure ideally mounted virtual models and save clinical time through the model and design phase screens.  This video will walk through the steps I use on a routine basis in my clinical theater for managing my Primescan Acquisition phase.  This is the same workflow used for Omnicam last few software versions (4.52 and 4.61).

Part one video in BioJaw anterior design series. The way I save time in my anterior design theater is to go into the case preplanned with a wax-up which I now do in inLab, print the model and use the wax-up as a reduction guide and basis for making provisionals when needed.  Time-saving comes from certain preparation reduction protocols for the case and then propose and refine with BioJaw, still using a BioCopy component to guide the BioJaw placement.  One thing unique to this case review is the strategy used to block out a dark root.

The Manufacture Phase Screen has the same setup features as in the prior CEREC 4.61 screen.  Occlusal Offset is the significant factor in this screen and getting it right on to avoid adjusting occlusion on the milled seated restorations.  Milling speed and bur size are chosen by material and margin thickness objectives for the case.

Even with a fully automated model screen, there are four checks I use before proposing to assure restorative fit.  This video will share my model screen hacks to save the day.  CEREC 4.61 and 5.0 software versions are the same, just different graphics interphase.  The principles of this video apply to the 4.61 software version as well.
